, with their opposition counterparts. there's no, there's no comparison. what we do have is a change in circumstances. because as you know, we've been governing from crisis to crisis with manufactured deadlines now, repeatedly whether it was the debt ceiling negotiations or the super committee. or the fiscal cliff or the sequester deadline. now because republicans chose to embrace the sequester, let it take place, let it be implemented with all its negative impacts, that's a negative. but the fact is it means we don't have the looming deadline that requires you know, huddled negotiations with congressional leadership to try to produce an outcome before you know, something terrible happens at midnight on any given day. we now are engaged in what's called regular order. budget process that includes the house passing a budget resolution, the senate passing its budget resolution. the president submitting his budget and then hopefully, hopefully through conference you know, through meetings of the house and the senate, you know, some kind of compromise emerges that represents the balance that the american
changing loopholes and make it revenue-neutral is some tax component to actually raise money against the deficit part of any deal that has to come out of all these talks? >> i mean, that is -- that's certainly the -- that's certainly the president's view, and that we had hoped that congress would have acted in the last month to pass, you know -- the president has put a balanced package on the table that is a combination of increasing revenues, of closing loopholes, as well as spending cuts, and, you know, the hope was that we would be able to pass that and have the revenues as part of that go for deficit reduction. now, you know, speaker boehner has -- is for tax reform. he has a view that we shouldn't use that money for deficit reduction, but what the president finds encouraging is that, you know, we're in the same universe in terms of the types of -- the types of reform that we think needs to happen. the president has been willing to join entitlement reform. we're not there yet, and the president had a really good dinner yesterday. there's a lot of differences, but some common grou

bit of a change, and if there is sort of one feeling, it's that if this happens quickly, it will be someone who is more expected. for example, the archbishop of milan, cardinal scola. if it goes on a while and they can't seem to coalesce around one or two candidates early on, it does open up the possibility of a north american pope. possibly a latin american or an african pope. so we'll have to see the way it plays out. i think the length of the conclave could start to give us some indication of how things are going. >> chris jansing and father john. thank you very much. i know you're going to be there throughout the hour, throughout the day until we see some smoke and until they complete their deliberations today, we'll get back to you the moment anything happens, thank you both. >>> meanwhile, here in washington on capitol hill today, conflicting fiscal visions. paul ryan unveiled his republican budget. now president obama is about to head to the hill to encourage senate democrats to offer their alternative later this week. joining me now for our daily fix, "washington

more fundamental problem which is on the major issues of the day, immigration, climate change, jobs, taxes. the republican party is out of the mainstream and that's why they lost women voters by 11 points. that's why they lost youth voters you know by historic number. that's why 71% of latino voters voted for the president. and i don't think an outreach program is going to fix it it's a policy program. it's a mainstream political problem and i think that if they follow the recommendations of this report they're going to have more problems in the future. >> i want to ask you about ofa. there's been criticism from others interested in disclosure, more media disclosure, given the technologies now, why isn't there immediate disclosure of contributors, concerns about conflict of interest. chuck todd was asking about this a couple of weeks ago at a white house briefing. let's play that. >> spend money on his behalf? >> this group is promoting a policy agenda. it's not trying to elect him, obviously, since -- >> i know they spent money to promote the agenda. >> as organization does all ove

about how much the political climate, if at all has changed as it ties to guns, karen, since what happened in newtown, connecticut late last year. >> well harry reid says he's basically counting the votes here. there are not the 60 votes it would take to overcome a filibuster on the tougher measures, i think also that he is looking at the fact that he has some democratic seats up for re-election in 2014. and in 2014. and in some states that it's going to be very difficult to hold. places like west virginia and arkansas. and so he's, he's really not quite ready. i think to sort of put his members on the line for this. so he will allow these to be offered as amendments from the floor. but there are also likely to be some amendments from the other side. it was interesting, too, to see vice president biden yesterday, up with mayor bloomberg. saying that the white house is basically not giving up this fight. but it sure doesn't seem how you get these things done. >> i thought, i'm glad you made that point. i thought joe biden saying -- remember newtown, pointing his finger, very tellin
change that relationship. now that president obama comes to israel as victorious, as with the mag nimity and generosity of a victorious president who won the elections, does not have netanyahu threatening him, he can reach out and try to prove to them that he is a real friend and this demonization of him was totally wrong. >> now, according to the polls, and you know better than i whether the polls are accurate reflection, is israelis are suspicious of this president, despite the long-standing ties and generosity on the missile defense system and other security issues, there's a real sense he hasn't shown israel the love. other presidents didn't come in their first term, ronald reagan never came as president, but at the same time they expected him to come, especially after he went to cairo in 2009. can he reach on the floor his head to the israeli people. >> there are three interesting events. king hussein of jordan, almost an enemy, and the friendly bill clinton coming to israel and winning the hearts of israelis instantly, although their positions were very critical of israeli policy,
